Watch ONE episode of "The Great British Baking Show" or (the nearly as good) "Great American Baking Show", and it will make this TRASH nearly unwatchable. I honestly did try to watch Ramsey's "what-excuse -can-I-find-for-a-tantrum" fest, and soon realized that EVERY season has the same characters (the unlikeable older guy, the flamboyantly gay guy, the tattooed "outsider", the hunky ex-military, the misunderstood emo kid, the grandmother with an "iffy" history, and so on) and they substitute unimportant differences in script for what they hope folks will see as "innovation". After all these years the only thing I've EVER gotten fro this show is that NO ONE can cook scallops and only the bipolar Ramsey should ever cook for the Ramsey family (Serve MY MOTHER a dog's dinner!?!?? Serve MY CHILDREN raw chicken?!!?!? How DARE you?!?!?!?). Seriously... watch Mary Berry.... learna little something about baking..... watch people succeed and fail.... understand WHY they succeed and fail.... see that they are never shunted down a hallway in shame and disgrace.... come to grips with the fact that NOTHING is as universal as feeding oneself and feeding others.... it is a science (somewhat) and an art (more than somewhat), but it is also an ATTITUDE that folks like the gracious and lovely Mary Berry (and Paul) grasp fully and beautifully, and the annoying (all bluster) "Chef" Ramsey probably never will.
I watch the show for the cooking and competition. Why does Hell's Kitchen feel the need to show the women in different states of undress while in their dorm rooms. I'm a woman watching what's supposed to be a cooking show and I don't need or want to see that kind of crap. Why does TV constantly exploit woman? What does that say about men? Not every man in existence needs to see T & A to watch a show and the ones that do are young in mind and shallow. Filming Holly talking about her huge porn collection and saying she filmed herself with partners is just unnecessary. It seems you can't watch anything these days without having titts and ass thrown in your face.
Finally the lying coward US marine is out of the show. I can't believe how he lies to put others down for his own gain. Guess that is how those marines just murders women and children in other countries for their own gain. Reflects in his attitude in the show.
What is up with all these idiot chefs. Where did they find them? I'm amazed at the attitudes an teamwork they all people all need to grow up. ALL THE JUNIOR CHEFS HAVE MORE TALENT. Feel bad for chef Ramsey hope ratings don't suffer too much.
Have producers ever thought of having a redemption season for the great chefs who came close but were beaten out . Michelle, Dana? I feel like it would intensify everything cause they know the kitchen and shouldn't make rookie mistakes.. It would just change things up for once.
Megan you need to take a long hard look at yourself, every episode we hear how you want to get the hell out of "Hell's Kitchen". Please feel free to leave. What you did to Michelle tonight made me Sick. She should be judged on merit and sadly enough was not by her peers. She is a better chef than you Megan which has been born out time and again in the competitions. Grow up, and perhaps one day you will make an adequate chef.
I honestly think the girls should have won the challenge but that little pompous bastard teenager Max totally killed it for them, honestly, over seasoned okra? How the hell would he know? If he had a clue he would have known that you DON'T DEEP FRY FILLET. Arg, I wanted to smack him in his snobby little face.
That Jennifer thinks she is so good!! I can't stand to watch her always thinking she is better than every one there! She shouldn't be allowed to stay if she's allergic to coconuts lol how's the fuck is she gonna be head of a massive restaurant if can't even touch some of the food without getting took to hospital lol! GET JENNIFER OUT!!! GET JENNIFER OUT!!!
Scallops. Risotto. Some sort of square pan-fried fish. Steak. Ho-hum. Junior Master Chefs are expected to cook different dishes every episode - why can't these professionals? I'd like to see MORE variety in the menu. I know the contestants aren't necessarily picked for their talent in the kitchen, but honestly! Even I wouldn't burn scallops three times in a row, three nights in a row. A new menu and new talent are needed - these simple mistakes and simple menu are getting old.
My husband and I started watching the show this fall, watching old seasons on Hulu. We just finished season 9. We really like the show, find it very entertaining, and it has even inspired me to try cooking a few things that I have never cooked before, like scallops, risotto and cauliflower puree.
We have noticed a tendency in the show that "colorful characters" (think Lacey or Sabrina) tend to hang around the show for an episode or two longer after it becomes obvious that its time for them to go; we assume this is to create more drama and excitement on the show. Which is fine. But in season nine a "colorful character" (Elise) was hung onto far too long and in our opinion this really detracted from our enjoyment of the show. I thought she should have been eliminated about halfway through the season; my husband, who is more generous, thought she should have been eliminated about four episodes sooner than she actually was.
For all the drama and interest they create, a big part of the enjoyment of having a colorful character on the show is the satisfaction of seeing that person get what's coming to them when they are eliminated. At the absolute minimum Elise should have been eliminated after the episode in which she lied to Chef Ramsay; he's never let a contestant get away with lying to him before, and seeing someone get away with something of that magnitude doesn't make for enjoyable viewing. She drove every other contestant that season crazy and started driving us crazy too! There's a line between drama that sucks you in and drama that repulses you, and season nine definitely crossed that line into the repulsive category.
We hope that season ten will be better! We like to watch a little craziness, a little drama, but the show seems to be getting steadily trashier each season and last season with Elise was over the top. We don't like to watch trash.
I read on a website somewhere recently that prior to season nine, Elise the "Diva Chef" was approached and asked to be on Hell's Kitchen. If true, that would explain a lot of things, such as why she was allowed to stay on the show after being repeatedly nominated for elimination, verbally abusing competitors, destroying hundreds of dollars worth of high quality fish, getting caught sabotaging competitors and getting caught lying to Chef Ramsay. A part of me wonders and almost hopes that she was chosen specifically because she's crazy and was guaranteed to make it to a certain point in the show as long as she kept the crazy train going. But I really hope they don't do that again because it was no fun to watch.
Prior to season nine I probably would have given the show a higher rating than 6.5. Hoping things turn around in season 10.
It was quite obvious that Chef Ramsey has chosen Bryant as the winner. When he told Bryant to come up with two names for elimination, I knew it was over. Ramsey's choice for Bryant to choose the two people to be eliminated gave Bryant the competitive edge.
Not too sure why he eliminated Roe instead of Jennifer. Roe had won a lot of challenges as opposed to the others. She is even on the Omaha Steaks Billboard. It also appeared that the others were ganging up
on Roe to make her look bad. Maybe Ramsey likes Bullies, since those have remained as contestants.
O don't think ramsy is fear I think he may be racists be caught Fernando never had gone to the chopping block and the one time he goes he gets cut , I've been watching the show from the first season and I've never seen a Hispanic make it no matter how good they are
Hell's Kitchen is one of FOX's most popular Reality competition shows & not just because Gordon Ramsay is in it.
This show reveals to us among its many competitors who are vying for a chef's position in one of Ramsay's many restaurants in a competition to see just who has what it takes to satisfy Gordon's high standards.
The contestants have their reasons to win that coveted chef's position, but most fall to the wayside due to their own mounting mistakes. Now i know i have once compared Reality TV competition shows to garish sideshows, but Hell's Kitchen stands out as compelling TV that shows us that behind the glamour of being a chef, there's hardships to be overcome.
Why does everyone allow the Joy/Keisha duo to get by with protecting each other. What they did to Rochelle was really a shit move. They obviously have a pact to keep these 2 black girls in. Keisha should have been gone ages ago. Notice each time Joy finds a reason to send another girl in. It is like reverse discrimination. I am sick of it. It has gotten obvious and I am appalled that Chef Ramsey doesn't call them on it. Keisha is slow, stupid and thinks she is the winner already. Someone stand up against those 2.
Kiesha is a line cook that has the skills of a dishwasher, you're annoying unorganized and lazy, no one is ever going to respect you enough to work under you. And joy is garbage too, yeah you might be able to cook but your a sneaky ***, I'm all for Rochelle now, as for the blue team, Anton is a joke without a punch line, have you ever actually worked a line before bro? Seriously dump the trash.
Someone please make Richard trim those nasty ass nose hair that just continues into his mustache. Its totally gross!!! I wouldn't be able to eat anything he had his hands on in fear that I would find some in my food. Yuk! I mean, isn't there some kinda rule about facial hair when your profession is a Chef? Hes really hard to look at with giant nose hairs sticking out of his nose..
What a sad cooking show hosted by an even sadder line cook. Why not get some real culinary talent and stop slicing the scallops so thin that they are very difficult to cook in chef donkeys celebrity diner. How much did gordie have to pay to get the michelin star. He is probably more deserving of a goodyear retread.
I can't stand that chick please for the love of god shut her mouth! I can out cook her with 1 arm blindfolded, and drunk ! She can't speak proper English so I take it you guys are promoting ignorance! Just kick her off no one and I MEAN NO ONE will miss her ..
I really like this show a lot but, not as much as Kitchen Nightmares. Chef Ramsay reminds me of myself when I go to restaurants. It seems I have trouble controlling my tongue when I taste something bad. A couple of weeks ago, I went to a place that claims to have fresh fish and on the sign it said "Fresh-Frozen" and I said to the guy behind the counter "Is it fresh or is it frozen?" he laughed and said it's "Freshly Frozen" I'm like you have got to be kidding me. I got quite angry and said "F*** there's nothing fresh about frozen fish".
The first thing to go when you smoke is your taste! I adore chef ramsey, however, he should choose his applicants based on "non-smoking". It's disgusting to watch the episodes when they are on break and see the contestants smoking away!
